Thermostat, dimmers and Serena shades.

http://forums.beyond.ca/st/396913/d...-apple-homekit/

The Serena shades are the best investment I've made. Cut down so much on A/C usage. I tried calling all 3 local distributors and they were useless and didn't want to sell them. If you call Serena shades directly they have CDN$ prices to the door, you can ask for a volume discount of 30%, and the shipping is relatively cheap. Takes about a month from order to delivery.

I have the WINK system, I have sensors on all my doors and windows, I have automated sequences that happen. I have the front door lock keypad, if the front door is closed for longer than 10 mins, it locks it if its not locked. Things like that. Every light in my place is on a Caseta in wall dimmer, have philips hue, have go control alarm, nest thermostat, nest protect smoke detector, touchscreen on the wall, ring video doorbell, and they're all connected, etc etc. lol. its fun.

Lol really? Ben Kaufman? Cool beans. Wink is getting better and better, although he stepped down. Neat to see DIY home automation become THE thing.

Picked up some GE light bulbs from home depot (50%+ sale - $10/ea and the starter kit was $30 - lots left at the Marlborough location), here's the links from the US site (couldn't find them on the Canadian site):

http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-Link-...-SKIT/205311040

http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-Link-...-SW27/205404345

http://www.homedepot.com/p/GE-Link-...-SW27/205404353

Apparently there's a way you can get them to work with homekit / hue hub, going to try to get that working this weekend.

No, not Ben.

You just connect it to Hue hub as a bulb and it acts like a hue bulb minus the color change.

$10/each? That's $4 cheaper than the Hue bulbs I bought. I might grab a couple more to change the ceiling fan and kitchen lighting.

Finally got around to installing everything with the new hue bridge 2.0 and the GE lights, but unfortunately the work around for getting third party lights to work with siri no longer works. Things still work from within the hue app, but only the hue bulbs respond to siri.

Going to end up returning all the GE bulbs to home depot / picking up some philips a19 from best buy (didn't realize they dropped in price down to $15, for $5 more per bulb, might as well get something that works straight out of the box)
